Updated COVID-19 Building Closure Policy
December 18, 2020

The health, safety, and well-being of employees, congregants, and community are of primary importance to Temple Isaiah. Given the increasing risk that COVID-19 poses, we are reminding everyone that the building is, and will remain, fully closed until further notice.

In light of the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in the Commonwealth, we are taking even stronger precautions to protect everyone in the Temple Isaiah family.

Until further notice, there will be no entry into Temple Isaiah under any circumstances by anyone without prior approval by the Executive Director or Facilities Manager, or in their absence, the President. A reminder of our protocols is posted on the front door of the synagogue.

All religious, educational, and social activities have been moved entirely online. The clergy and staff are working fully remotely except in limited cases as their work requires their presence in the building.

Should any congregant feel they have a need to enter the building, please contact the office by phone at 781-862-7160 or by email at generalinfo@templeisaiah.net with a minimum of 48 hours’ notice. We will do our best to respond to your request within 24 hours.

Employees who feel that they need to enter the building should direct their request to their immediate supervisor.

Anyone who receives prior permission to enter the building must do the following:

Wear a mask covering both your nose and mouth at all times while on Temple property, including the parking lot.

Use hand sanitizer before or upon entering the building. Sanitizer is available in the main lobby.

Sign the logbook in the main lobby upon entry and exit. This is critical both for contact tracing and for health attestation.

Maintain social distancing at a minimum of six (6) feet at all times.

Notify the office if you develop any symptoms or are exposed to someone who develops symptoms and/or tests positive for COVID within two (2) weeks of visiting the building.

This policy will remain in effect indefinitely. We will communicate any updates or changes as circumstances warrant.

We all miss the physical spaces of our beloved Temple Isaiah. However, we appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation in supporting our efforts to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Making these accommodations today helps ensure our community’s long-term health and vitality tomorrow.

The Temple Isaiah community is strong and thriving. We remain connected to one another even as our building remains physically closed, and we look forward to a time when we can safely be together again.

Sincerely,

Alan Sherman
Executive Director
